Best Luxury Hotels In Pangkor

This unspoilt island is found off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Pangkor Village, the main town, exudes a laid-back atmosphere. Stroll through its narrow streets to experience the local way of life and explore quaint shops, or wander around a small fishing village. There’s a Dutch Fort, built in the 17th century, standing as a reminder of the island’s colonial past. And you can visit the Fu Lin Kong Temple, a colourful Taoist place of worship. Pangkor is synonymous with a stunning shoreline. Teluk Nipah Beach is one of the most popular, while Coral Beach is perfect for those seeking a quieter escape.
